Jones has 13 tackles through four games in 2012. He finished last season with 48 tackles, including seven tackles for loss and four sacks. He has made 20 starts over the course of his Georgia career, though 2011 was his first as a primary contributor. Jones was named the SEC's defensive lineman of the week after his performance against the Kentucky Wildcats.
The Bulldogs rank 43rd nationally in total defense through the first four games, and 49th in run defense. They're up against a tough Tennessee passing game this week, one that features a couple of talented receivers in Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson. Kickoff of the game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.
